Origins

The wines of Chambolle-Musigny, located in the Côte de Nuits, are unique red wines that symbolize finesse and elegance… This appellation is one of the smallest and most parcelled out of the Côte with only 97 ha of Village appellation vines, 50 ha of Premiers Crus and 25 ha of Grands Crus. The terroirs of Chambolle-Musigny are rather homogenous and enjoy eastern exposure. The delicate silkiness of its wines stems directly from the soil type. Of its 22 Premiers Crus, “Les Charmes” and “Les Amoureuses” are undoubtedly the most famous. The soil here is relatively stony with the parent rock just 50-60 cm below the surface.
